pictures from karin and jeremy’s arbor day barn wedding in nebraska

You are going to love Karin and Jeremy’s DIY wedding, and these beautiful snaps from Bryan and Mae capture every handmade-with-love detail perfectly. Karin’s dress was made by her mom and aunt, and she asked her friends to bring their own bundt cakes to serve as table centerpieces and to eat! She was pretty much my favorite kind of bride to work with, and of course she is a friend of mine too. She was flexible, creative, open to ideas, and above all, focused on the real meaning of the day–not the decorations, the things, the food, the dress–but the marriage to her love and the union of their families.

I picked out some of my favorite photos from their wedding to tell a story about my friend Karin, the love of her life Jeremy, and their magical outdoor wedding surrounded with the support of their families.

See more BEAUTIFUL pictures on Bryan and Mae’s blog. Their wedding was also recently featured on Style Me Pretty. Check out more pictures of Karin and Jeremy’s flowers on my previous post about our work for them.
Congratulations Karin and Jeremy! I’ll see you at the next party!

when you want to work as remotely as possible: traveling for business

A: Travel is important to me because it helps my morale. It recharges my spirit. Every month or two? I like to get away as often as I can…probably sometimes to the annoyance of my business partner and coworkers. It’s always important to me to find something to work on wherever I go–a reason to make it worth my while from a business perspective–but there are some places I go just to ONLY work.

OOTD: Office Hours

This summer instead of having our 4-year-old Alice go to her school’s summer program, Dave and I decided to get a nanny. Her name is Kylie and she’s been WONDERFUL over the past two months! I really wish we could keep her all year and just have Alice in this hybrid coparenting-learning-field tripping-coming to the office situation, but I’m not sure I’m up for all the coordination it would take. I’m definitely considering it because I’ve never seen Alice so engaged and happy–she plays all day, does art and science camps and activities all over town, and gets lots of time outside, which leads to nice early bedtimes. Smile. I love having her at work after 4 every day and all day on Fridays.

Letter from a reader: Changes and consistency

I am a long time reader of your blog and have seen it through its various incarnations. I wondered if you might find inspiration one day to discuss the changes, i.e., the changes in you. For example (and these are purely from memory, so I may very well be misremembering things or just plain getting things wrong):

A Long Day

1. Woke up and read Dril’s favstar to start my day off on the right foot. Dropped Alice off at her first day of summer art camp—sculpture making at the Joslyn Art Museum. 2. Quick shower and blow-dry before Rebecca Forsyth’s Vintage-Inspired Hairstyling salon training class. 3. Got my hair set with my good friend and former Princess Lasertron model Caitlin. 4. Snacks on Jonathan Adler dishes under beautiful boxes of hair color. 5-6. Rebecca setting and styling Caitlin’s hair. 7. The “after.”
